Ballarat parkrun

What is Ballarat parkrun?

A free, fun, and friendly weekly 5k community event. Walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate – it's up to you!

When is it?

Every Saturday at 8:00am.

Where is it?

The event takes place at Victoria Park, Sturt Street, Ballarat, Vic, 3350. See Course page for more details.

What does it cost to join in?

Nothing - it's free! but please register before you first come along. Only ever register with parkrun once and don't forget to bring a scannable copy of your barcode (request a reminder). If you forget it, you won't get a time.

How fast do I have to be?

We all take part for our own enjoyment. Please come along and join in whatever your pace!

Ballarat parkrun needs you!

It is entirely organised by volunteers - email to help.

We're friendly!

Every week we grab a post parkrun coffee in Inexterior Café, 401-403 Mair Street (corner of Mair and Doveton Sts), Ballarat - please come and join us!
